Of course, I didn’t realize it, at first. Like many parents, we thought it was normal development, but certain things seemed, “off.” First it was that favorite foods were no longer enjoyed. Then not eaten. Trips to the bathroom after meals. Then came diets…no sugar, no dairy, no carbs…until eventually, it seemed to just be, no food. It finally came to a head one evening when she was hungry, but just couldn’t eat. And that’s when Sydney told us that she was afraid to eat—that she was afraid of food.
There are times as a parent that require that we put aside a base response of horror. That would certainly not help the situation, and may hurt by scaring the child and shutting down communication. This was definitely not what Kim and I wanted. So we calmly opened a dialogue that would become the starting point what will be a long journey.
So far, it’s a day-to-day process involving doctors, therapists, and nutritionists. There’s been ups and downs.
This will be my diary of trying to help my teen daughter to recover from an eating disorder.

I was making cake decorations today. In process in the picture is a tree for the graveyard, the handles for the coffin and an angel tomb monument. Other “necessary” tools are ample cake colorings, edible gold dust, stereo remote and a large glass of lemonade. Note: the bottle of vodka was used for making an edible paint from the gold dust and bakers colorings, and was not for consumption. The aluminum foil was vital for wrapping the pizza I ordered for dinner because I was too freaking tired of working in the kitchen to actually make dinner.

“I cried because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet.” -Anonymous
This, of course, is the saying to indicate that there is always someone worse off than you. But is there? At what point, when you move down the linear progression, do you find the person who is at the worst point of humanity?
For sake of the argument, we have to take death off the table, because for most religions and ideologies, death is actually a passing to bigger and better things. So, are we looking at the literal of someone who has no arms or legs or is blind, or the theological, of someone who has lost faith? Parents who’ve lost children? Children who’ve lost parents?
Who is the person who “has no feet?”

Sydney and I went to reset the pool security cameras. When I turned around these three were watching us. I snorted at them and the one with it’s head up started to walk toward us. I kept snorting, and although they weren’t too concerned, they finally went back into the brush. These are three of the does that are part of the herd that live in back of our house.

I tried getting the vocoder function of the Behringer DSP2024P working today. I was not successful. I think I need to change how I connected the midi controller, but I don’t have that type of cable.
